I had an upper GI the radiologist says on his report my stomach was turned upside down. Is this possible if so can it block my surrounding organs?

Gastric volvulus: There are two types of gastric volvulus(stomach twisted on it self). Organo-axial volvulus which is generally a benign condition requiring no intervention. Then there is mesenteroaxial volvulus which generally will need surgery and can be a surgical emergency.
